The Lakers returned to the court for the first time in 135 days on Thursday … but James lebron had more important things to discuss next.
“First of all, I want to continue to shed light on justice for Breonna Taylor and his family and everything that’s going on with this situation, ”James told media after a scrum against the Dallas Mavericks.
“We want the cops arrested who committed this crime.”
James – along with the rest of the NBA – is pushing for social justice as the league returns to the game … especially for Taylor, who was killed by 3 Louisville police officers at his home in March.
“As the leader of this league, I want her family to know that, and I want the state of Kentucky to know that we feel for her and that we want justice. That’s what it is about. . What is good is good and what is wrong is wrong. “
As we previously reported, Taylor’s family is well aware of advocacy run by NBA superstars … and Breonna’s mom said TMZ Sports she is grateful for their actions.
“Everyone raises their voice for justice is what keeps this family alive every day” Tamika palmer tell us.
LeBron – who etched “” # Justice4BreonnaT “” onto his sneaker for Thursday night’s scrum – also weighed in on Black Lives Matter … clarifying that it’s not a movement, but a lifestyle.
“When you’re Black it’s not a movement,” James said. “It’s a lifestyle. We sit here and say it’s a movement, and, okay … how long is this movement going to last?”
“Don’t stop the movement. … No, it is a path of life. When you wake up and you’re black, that’s what it is. “
“It shouldn’t be a movement. It should be a lifestyle. It’s who we are.”
Our sincere thanks to
